Did you know that one of the worst things you can eat if you suffer from acid reflux or heartburn is fried food?
Fried foods both trigger reflux symptoms and make it more likely that you’ll suffer from reflux again in the future.
But with that said, you don’t have to completely avoid your fried favorites… At Alkamind, we find ways to enjoy acidic foods the alkaline way.
These parsnip fries are baked, not fried, using alkaline ingredients. And they are served with anti-inflammatory ketchup that you’ll want to eat with all kinds of foods.
Parsnips are a root vegetable that have a mild taste, so they make a great swap for white potatoes. They do need to be roasted for a while to become tender – these are not fast food – but you might find you enjoy them even more than potatoes when you do.

GET OFF YOUR SUGAR: Burn the Fat, Crush Your Cravings, and Go From STRESS EATING to STRENGTH EATING removes the guilt and shame many of us feel for our addiction to sugar, and replaces them with a powerful yet easy-to-follow program with practical tips to kick the sugar habit in your real life.
Kelly Ripa, who wrote the Foreword, had this to say:
“I’ve followed Dr. Daryl’s Get Off Your Sugar Program for a little over a year. It’s doable, it’s delicious, and I’ve seen the proof that it works too—last year, when I turned 50, Dr. Daryl tested my biological age, and it showed I had the physical health of a 35 year old. Clearly, we’re doing something right!
“I love how Dr. Daryl focuses on what you need to add to your diet instead of what to take away, but I think what really makes his approach so powerful is that he helps you get off—and stay off—the stress-eating roller coaster.
“I know it’s so hard not to rely on your favorite sweet treats when life gets tough, and it can be difficult to manage everything life throws at you, but hear me out: thanks to Dr. Daryl, you’re holding in your hands a proven strategy and plan that will help you through the tough times. When you strength eat every day, you’re better equipped to handle challenges that arise, whether that’s a global pandemic or something closer to home.” –Kelly Ripa
